Thanks for pointing out Geoffrey Philip's blog. It looks like a very good place to go! I stopped by more than 5 blogs and left comments this weekend.

One blog I love so much is not a book blog but a political blog, but you didn't specify :--) so I am recommending Field Negro. Here is his latest post address: http://field-negro.blogspot.com/2009/05/pro-life.html

Susan, thanks for stopping by my blog :)
I love meeting all the different people in the blogosphere, it seems so much friendly there then it is in real life.
(Am I really this cynical? I don't think so).

mee said...

I have spread some love this morning ;). Oh the link to Beyond The Blog on your list needs to be fixed I think.

susan said...

Geoffrey, Color Online will be donating a copy of The
Meaning of Consuelo
on your behalf to Adele's Literacy Library.

MotherReader said...

Thanks so much for including my blog, and more specifically and importantly, the 48 Hour Book Challenge. This is my fourth year running a challenge for bloggers to read and blog for as much of a weekend as you can. Yes, there are prizes, but the best prize is giving yourself permission to make reading your priority for 48 hours. You still may need to take the kids to a soccer game or go to a co-worker's pool party, but for everything else you can say, "Sorry, but I have to read all day."

For me the 48HBC is also about the community of bloggers and sharing the experience. This year the 48HBC is encouraging participants to tie their own personal readathon to a cause of their choice to add a little bit of the Greater Good to the challenge and maybe make it easier to read just a little longer.

Sorry this was kinda long, but I'm honored to be included in your lovefest.

I shared some love today, too. I have been behind on reading blogs, but I started getting caught up today and I left comments as support!

susan said...

Thanks Rebecca!

Melanie said...

I spread the love with at least five blogs to day. Its really interesting the blogs you come across, just by randomly browsing. I think everyone should go check out the post below. It made me smile, and I think everyone needs to smile!
